    LaMelo Ball entered the league as one of the top prospects in the 2020 NBA draft and amidst heavy speculations about his caliber. In fact, he had already gained a fan following thanks to his dramatic family. To top it off, his brother Lonzo Ball was also one of the top prospects during the 2017 NBA draft.

    Those who have watched the Hollywood movie Warrior (2011) will understand how Lonzo Ball was Tom Hardy and LaMelo Ball was Joel Edgerton in Pelicans vs Hornets. The two brothers faced one another for the very first time in their professional careers, and it was worth watching them. Even before the match could start, there was a lot of hype about the two clashing. Previously, just 4 games into the league, LaMelo had become the only player after Lonzo (2017) to score north of 20+ points, 8 rebs, and 5 assists within the first four games. All these stats increased the hype for a potential one-on-one battle between the brothers.

    NEW ORLEANS — Gordon Hayward scored 22 of his 26 points in the second half and the Charlotte Hornets methodically came back from an 18-point, second-quarter deficit to beat the New Orleans Pelicans 118-110 on Friday night. “He’s a pro. He’s been here before. He’s not fazed by a bad half, a bad quarter,” Hornets coach James Borrego said. “He gives us a calming force, a presence that we may not have had in the past. “Even in that fourth quarter as that game got tight, there was no panic,” Borrego added. “And a lot of it has to do with Gordon finishing.” The game marked the first time brothers Lonzo and LaMelo Ball — both top-three draft choices within the past four years — played against one another. LaMelo Ball, picked No. 3 overall in 2020, had the better night, nearly notching a triple-double with 12 points, 10...

    Colorado grand jury will investigate death of Elijah McClain Trump went ballistic after being tossed off Twitter LaMelo Ball finishes just short of triple-double in first game vs. brother Lonzo In the NBA’s first battle between Lonzo Ball and LaMelo Ball, it was the younger brother who came out on top. The rookie LaMelo helped lead his Charlotte Hornets to a 118-110 win over the New Orleans Pelicans on Friday. In the process, he nearly made some history with a stat line of 12 points, 11 rebounds and 9 assists. One more assist would have made Ball the youngest player in NBA history to record a triple-double. Instead, he’ll just have to be satisfied with the win and the knowledge that he buried a 3-pointer in his brother’s face: LaMelo hit the step-back three over Lonzo ???? pic.twitter.com/S9xVxbMP8B— SportsCenter (@SportsCenter) January 9, 2021 Lonzo finished with five points, two...
    LaMelo Ball grew up playing 3-on-3 games against his older brother Lonzo on a concrete court in the backyard of their parents’ home in Chino Hills, California. "Nobody took it easy on me — fighting, scrapping, falling on concrete," LaMelo said. "Parents would get scared when their kids went back there. It was something you had to witness for real."

Kyle Downes and his brother were playing Sunday at the Coral Oaks Golf Course in Cape Coral, Florida, when one of their balls landed on the alligator.  "It's gonna whip you with that tail dude!"

    (CBS Miami)- A Florida man was caught on camera retrieving his golf ball from a particularly dangerous hazard – the tail of a very large sunbathing alligator. Just another normal day in Florida at the Coral Oakes Golf Course in Cape Coral. Kyle Downes and his brother were golfing on Sunday when a ball landed on the gator’s tail. So Downes decided to do what any good Florida man would do by retrieving his ball off the gator’s tail, very carefully. Kyle shared the video on Facebook which shows his brother sneaking up to the gator before gingerly picking up the ball. The alligator, apparently startled, darts into the water. The alligator in the video has been spotted before and is known as Charlie to golfers.
    Getty Golden State Warriors forward Draymond Green It seems as if social media star and headline maker Lavar Ball’s predictions may be closer to the truth than fiction. His youngest son, social media sensation and now #3 pick in the 2020 NBA Draft LaMelo Ball was chosen by Michael Jordan’s Charlotte Hornets as their new franchise centerpiece. That marked the second player within the Ball family’s youngest generation to be drafted and sign an NBA contract. But Lavar Ball didn’t say just two of his sons would be signed to an NBA team. He said all 3 would. Recently, that became true as his middle son, LiAngelo Ball, officially signed a non-guaranteed contract with the Detroit Pistons. LiAngelo Ball, the brother of Pelicans guard Lonzo Ball (No. 2 overall pick in 2017) and Hornets No. 3 pick LaMelo Ball, is signing an Exhibit 10 deal, sources said. The...
    Lonzo Ball feels he has an advantage over younger brother LaMelo Ball when the two face off next season. Love him or hate him, LaVar Ball spoke it into existence. Last week, youngest son LaMelo was selected third overall by the Charlotte Hornets in the 2020 NBA Draft. With that pick, LaMelo and oldest sibling Lonzo are the first pair of brothers to be selected in the top-five of the draft in NBA history. It’s only a matter of time before we get the “Ball Family Collision” between the Hornets and the New Orleans Pelicans in the very near future. There’s already sibling trash talk taking place, and of course, it’s from Lonzo. During an appearance on J.J. Reddick’s podcast, Lonzo said he feels that when the two face off, he holds the advantage and that LaMelo will have a “tough night.” Lonzo Ball drops the micThe eldest brother picking...

He had a disastrous debut pro season as a 16-year-old in the Lithuanian Basketball League before lighting up Australia's NBL this past year. Ball averaged 17 points, 7.6 rebounds, 6.8 assists, and 1.6 steals in his lone campaign with the Hawks. The California native became the youngest player in NBL history to register a triple-double...

    The baby brother is supposed to be the best. He spends his childhood trying to keep up with his older siblings, playing against their older friends, wanting to exceed the weight on his shoulders of being so-and-so’s little brother.  LaMelo Ball is Lonzo’s baby brother (and LiAngelo’s, too, but for the sake of discussion, this is about LaMelo and Lonzo). Now all that’s left to find out is who’s better. Lonzo was the No. 2 overall pick in the 2017 NBA Draft out of UCLA. LaMelo is lining up to be a top-three selection in the 2020 NBA Draft with a less conventional path to get there. They’re similar in stature and position, but they’ve got different games. Lonzo has proven to be a solid pass-first point guard in the NBA, while LaMelo oozes upside coupled with risk. Will the Ball family follow the universal rules of athletic baby...
